HAPPY NEW YEAR



Happy New Year! Will you be making resolutions? Will you be keeping them? I have no idea where the practice came from. Perhaps you do. But often new year turns out to be just like the old years, with our hopes disappearing under the stress of old pressures. Is that how it usually is for you?

But there is one year when everything became different. A year when the world changed. The year that Jesus was born. As we move in Him to the new creation, may this be a year of His renewal of us. The year when the Boys Brigade overcomes the drop-out of Anchors to Juniors by considering moving to Tuesdays. When we discover if our long-held dream of a weekly cafe is Godís will. When we will see the Lordís blessing of new folk coming to join us in worship and in membership; when the Lord blesses our communities by bringing people into the kingdom of the Son He loves.

And if you are still looking for a resolution that you can actually keep, here is one for us all from Hebrews 10:23-25 ď23 Let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess, for He who promised is faithful. 24 And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds, 25 not giving up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but encouraging one anotheróand all the more as you see the Day approaching.Ē

We cannot see the future but our Father in heaven, not only sees it, He controls it. If we trust in Christ, seek our Fatherís Kingdom, and by the power of the Holy Spirit plant as He directs and water as He ordains He will provide the growth. Thatís His promise, thatís our faith.

As the Lord does what only He can do and we co-operate with Him, then, like the virgin Mary becoming a mother, and the bachelor Joseph becoming her husband and a step-father to Jesus, we will not only see our lives changed for the purposes of God but we will be filled with joy and peace.

Blessings.


Nick
